Why is everyone making such a big deal about this. joe grabbed the fence as well. I mean hell in the last tito fight as many times a he grabbed the fence people were defending him. In rand vs chuck2 chuck grabbed the fence when randy was going to slam him and no body said anything about that. But when kenflow grabs the fence he is a cheater and a terrible fighter who should have lost the fight.

He owned pretty much the whole fight guys get over it.

If Kenny had avoided the takedown when he grabbed the fence I think for sure he would have got a point deducted.
Since he was taken down anyways (granted, with less force) that's probably why the Ref let him off with a warning.

It is pure instinct, when someone is trying to smash you into the ground, naturally you will grab at anything available.

I don't know if it is a few unhappy Daddy fans giving it more attention than it really merits. It makes little difference, Kenny will always beat Joe, he is a very well rounded fighter. Once BJ is done getting mauled by Georges, and back where he belongs defending his own belt, the fight with Kenny will be fantastic. You can do it Kenny!

I would agree with the natural reaction argument. He got picked up, was about the be slammed, natural reactions are to grab the fence.
